Could do nothing about the goals but some shaky distribution and clearances.
Full of running but offered little attacking threat and looked vulnerable defensively.
Some good anticipation at the back and had to get tight to Liverpool's forwards to deny them the chance to run in behind.
Tottenham's captain never looked comfortable against Liverpool's attacking movement. Beaten too easily and made rudimentary errors on and off the ball.
Classy on the ball but poor positioning throughout. Caught ball watching by Sterling for the opener and conceded the penalty with a naive tug on Allen.
The Argentine worked hard throughout and showed flashes of quality without ever really making an impact in the final third.
Played on the right of the Spurs midfield but could not get in positions to cause Liverpool any real problems.
On the fringes for most of the match and really should have scored just before half-time when he smashed straight at Mignolet.
A tidy screen in front of the back four without ever really taking control of the game.
Some decent simple passing but overrun in midfield by the energy of Henderson and Allen.
An off day for the forward. Did not provide enough of an option for team-mates as the focal point of the Spurs attack. Lobbed a great opportunity over the crossbar in the first-half.
A quiet afternoon but stepped up when he was called upon with a fine save to deny Chadli an equaliser just before half-time.
Replaced Glen Johnson and on this evidence he's an upgrade on the England full-back. Strong defending and used the ball efficiently.
Not the best on the ball but strong and powerful as he won challenges and covered well when balls were played in behind.
Misread long balls from Tottenham on two occasions in the first-half but otherwise a superb defensive display as he denied Spurs attackers any space.
Defensively sound throughout and capped off an impressive display with a stunningly quick 50-yard run and low finish into the far corner.
On hand to mop up play at the base of Liverpool's midfield and start attacks. Made no mistake with his penalty low into the corner in the 49th minute.
An understated but effective display. Took up good positions and used the ball well. Went down very easily for the penalty but it was still the right decision from the referee. Replaced by Can in the 61st minute.
All eyes were on Balotelli - but Sterling was the star of the show. Opened the scoring from close range in the eighth minute and a constant threat with his quick thinking and even quicker feet. Should have added another in the second half.
His driving run and cross made the opener and set the tone for Liverpool's performance. Full of energy in central midfield and always a threat on the counterattack.
The main attraction before kick-off and he made a very handy Liverpool debut. Should have scored with a close range header in the third minute and missed the chance to put the ball in an empty net from 30 yards. But he got in the positions and his link-up play and work rate will excite Liverpool fans.
Movement and trickery worried Tottenham and combined well with Balotelli and Sterling. Denied by Lloris following a hard and low strike in the second-half.
Came on for the injured Rose and did a decent job.
Made little impact after replacing Bentaleb in the 59th minute.
Came on for Eriksen and his first contribution was to lose the ball to Moreno, who stormed up the pitch to score the goal that put the result beyond doubt. Careless cameo.
